teaching

You know that old saying, "Those who can't do: teach?"

I was thinking today. I shared Reiki with people with cancer and I taught Reiki to eager practitioners and people with cancer. Much as I love doing, I love teaching even more.

I mean, I like to model "doing" as I teach. I like the hands-on style of teaching. That's not what I mean.

When I'm just a "doer" I feel like a false expert. Well, I'm kind of am an expert in some things, but you know.... I don't like to be perceived that way. Like I'm an expert doer and the only best special doer. Because most things anyone can do. So I like to teach so they can.

When I teach, then everyone can do. It's empowering for the student. I like to teach.
